I'm in. My buddy and I are riding up friday and are going to be there around 8 or so. Camping at the Shady Acres. Is there going to be some sort of group bonfire that is lacking 2 chairs and a trunk pack of beer?

Looks like I have a grounding problem on the 640. Anyone like puzzles?

Does that mean that you'll have to kick start that pig, like a real man?
Or will you miss out on an opportunity to ride because of that foo-foo button?


I'll be at Lewison. I'll be riding something big, red and fast.
I'll probably miss Saturday's dinner, but hope to catch a bit of the campfire BS sessions

Big, red and fast? the math dictates that you can have any two, but not all three combined.

I respectfully disagree. You can have all three. And for half the price of an orange one.

I will be there to see Matt, red, fast, and tree.

Is Bigtrailmix good at math?

HOW BOUT' YOU teeeeeeeem dawg?!??



keeek it! Keeeeeeek it.

I hear that there is a secret way to start the cold blooded Hondah XR six ever hundred.

First you kick the starter peddle through two times. Choke on.

You then want to feel for the compression stroke and set the peddle all the way up so you can get the cylinder on a firing stroke with the peddle and your weight in full kick..

Then pull out your Iphone and look up a KTM dealer. Call and don"t look back.

Electric starter invented 1899.

Anyone interested, can meet me at the BP Gas station in White Lake at the corner of Teggerdine and M59 at 9:30'sh
Hope you had a great ride. I'm in Commerce Township and have an 1150GSA. Can't ride for next 2-3 weeks due to an injury. After that, may be available to take a ride like this with you. I ride mostly road and a little dirt.

Do you guys have to look up the number? Or do you have your mechanics on speed dial?

So while your pals were riding in the woods you went and got a cage? What's up with this Timdog? You have been hanging out with Mike too much. Sand rails are for when you can't ride anymore. Are you going to take tennis lessons next?

You better ride that thing up here so we can look at it. Are you spending your time on VW threads now?

Tough love, Josh.

Lots of our peeps out this weekend. Jason showed up with a buddy and rode with Paul. Jack and a couple of his pals. Scott, Nathan and a noob they brought up to see if they could break (he was licking his wounds at dinner, poor guy).

Matt, Todd, Steve, Joe, Adam and Dave. Dave's girlfriend rocked the single track but didn't care so much for the easy straight sections . .

Rained hard Friday night but it cleared up nicely for Sat and Sun. Perfect temps and weather, outstanding trails and great company - what else is there (well . . for some, maybe electric start )






We were thinking of you, Marco;







Matt's sweet new Honda 650 R, and what's this ?? Todd's super tanker ran out of gas ??
